South Africans condemned the actions from the event organizers as many were visibly seen disregarding corona virus regulations. Many speculated that such reports would lead the government to decide against the decision to lift the alcohol ban and ultimately lead to the 3rd wave of infections. Many people who were claim that the police threw in teargas and dispersed the crowd with rubber bullets.
This midweek part was unusually pavked to the rafter and the lineup was star studded with the best artists in the country. Many called for citizens to act more responsible in order to try and curb the virus. Hulumeni Lifestyle has become notorious for not following the regulations and this might lead to more severe actions from law enforcement. The party which was for Jobe London and Killer Kau's listening party definitely got many people talking.
